The house is starting to look empty already with just items removed off of the walls in the living room and kitchen/dining room.
Notice the boxes up in the bay window...so they don't block our walking paths through the living room. Brilliant, right? Left the clock on the wall for now...and really need to cull my magazine
M says this morning, with a mouthful of waffle, "sure looks empty in here." Not quite empty, but definitely a shift towards the moving process. And the holes, oh the holes! Apparently I had tried numerous times to get some of the items hanging on the walls just right judging from the number of nail/screw holes behind said item when removed from it's spot. (Note to self: do not use anything other than picture nails if possible...the others have a tendency to pull some drywall off with it's removal. Fail.)
The emotions are all over the board right now...excited for our new adventure, sad to be leaving the haven we brought M home to and all of the renovations we've done over the past 12 years on it. As well as our neighbors T and D...I remember like it was yesterday wheeling 1 month old M over to their house in his stroller to show them our new addition, and D saying to me "I didn't even know you were pregnant!" Love these people...friends FOR LIFE! They are retired now so they can hop on their Harley's and come visit us in Amish country.
Was told not too long ago by a very wise realtor (ours in fact) that a year from now all of the chaos will be a distant memory...I'm holding you to that, C!
